Bottle trade with wavers1. Terry, you’re a God, and probably my favorite trading partner. Thank you. This beer is God-damn incredible. Color is a brown-black with ruby highlights and no head. Nose is rife with port, plum, strawberry, unbelievable malts, great character from the wood (which itself was imported from Elven Country) and a very vinous, ephemeral character. Flavor is the fruit and wood mentioned above, topped off with a beautiful dark grape old port character that is just absurd. Like a chocolatey, brandy-soaked Alexander the Grape. Just unbelievably balanced and possibly the best wood-aged beer I have ever had.

freretoc (1772) - Besançon, FRANCE - APR 29, 2016
Bue en bouteille de 33cl à la brasserie, bouteille #826 couleur noire pas de mousse et pas d’effervescence. Nez sur le vin, le caramel et les tanins. Attaque acide avec une grosse pointe de tanin continuité sur la vanille et le sherry. Bel équilibre sur la rondeur

Zlotta (2354) - Hagen, GERMANY - APR 25, 2016
0.33 l bottle from ’De Bierkoning’, bottled in April 2015. Pitch black with a thin, frothy, almost stable, light brown head. Sweetish-malty and a little fruity aroma of dark chocolate, vanilla, red grapes, dark ripe fruits, some booze and burnt nuts. Sweet, malty and minimally fruity taste of dark chocolate, dark ripe fruits, vanilla, licorice and hints of red grapes, followed by a medium long, slightly roasty-bitter, minimally warming-alcoholic finish with a touch of tart berries. Medium to full body, oily mouthfeel, flat. Not the expected flavour bomb, but the barrel notes are perfectly in balance with the base beer. Quite sophisticated, rather easy to drink despite the abv. Very good!

Renobob (1821) - Besançon, FRANCE - APR 7, 2016
Bue en bouteille de 33cl. Pas loin de la perfection. Nez, palais, texture, corpulence et finale sont exactement ce que j’aime. Juste ce qu’il faut, pas trop comme quelque fois chez De Molen. Equilibre parfait.

Lovely balance between oak, whiskey and porter. Has a nice sweetness, making it a bit like port. Slight roasted malts. Lovely! ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

rouhlas (2897) - GREECE - APR 1, 2016
330 ml bottle at home, thanks to Douberd! Bottled on 2015/04/01 so its exactly one year in the bottle. Black color with nice beige head. Malty aroma, dark dried fruits, wood, vinous, when it gets warmer there are coffee notes, some chocolate, smoked notes too. Sweet, bitter and acidic taste like aroma with smoked wood notes again when it gets warmer. Light to medium oily body with soft carbonation.
